This weekend we were visited by friends who have never seen our home in Birmingham. I wanted to do something special for them, but first we had to give the entire house a really good clean and tidy because we knew they would want the grand tour. It took the best part of [...]

It’s been a while since I’ve posted because I’ve been away visiting first my Dad and then my Mum. No-one can say I’m not a model daughter. I’ve also had a birthday – and I’m not the only one.

It’s tempting to tell you that I’ve not posted in so long because of the non-stop rain which has scuppered all plans of green-fingered activity. But that would be a lie. And while I feel no requirement to be totally honest with you, readers-o-mine, I do think it would be a bit cheap [...]
